Dr Hawkins, is definitely enthusiastic about the amazing subject matter in this book, but he doesnt make any verbal acrobats that i can see. He is an intelligent man and a doctor who are normally biased when it comes to using medical terminology that are not well understood by non doctor people/laymen, he is considerate and uses very little of this.
His lifes work is easy to follow and shocking to read.
Power vs Force is eloquent and very clear. He uses prominent figures, well known books etc as subject matter for his testing of his theories which i think are brilliant (i.e Ghandi - excellent example of the use of power winning over force - british ), he puts forward theories that are well documented, supported and ultimately, extremely believable.
His theories resonate and support and add to those theories put forward by such conscious writers as Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr Deepak Chopra etc. He uses scientific, kinesiological testing with patients, subjects and volunteers that puts forth the definite idea that we are all one and connected to a collective conciousness that permeates everything and everyone. Carl Jung understood this with his study of archetypes in dream analysis etc.
Whether we know something to be true or not our body, our cells, know the truth of whatever question is put to us by the tester.
You can do this test at home. Hold an organic banana close to your heart and have a friend try to press your arm down as you hold your arm straight out at a 90 degree angle from your body, are you able to resist with great strength? I can guarantee you will. Now hold pesticide treated fruit to your heart and try the same test, you will go weak. Packets of vitamin c and artificial sugar ( they look identical ) were handed out to an audience who were given the same test, all went weak with the artifical sugar. You can try the same test when posing the idea or thought of someone with a low resonating energy pattern, such as the wonderful Adolf Hitler, all will go weak. Try having your test subject think of Mother Theresa, all will go strong at the thought of this wonderful, compassionate human being. Getting excited, now you can understand Dr Hawkins excitement as well as those of his readers and colleagues. This form of testing should be used when treating patients with physical or mental illness. Even if your ego mind isnt aware of any illness or disease forming in your body, your body/mind/spirit is. You can use the same test in respects to music, art, color...the implications are endless. We are all made strong or weak by our thoughts and it is wise to avoid all thoughts that weaken you. YOu will easily see which thoughts weaken thought this test, if you werent already aware.
Helplessness, depression, grief, anger, bitterness, envy, resentment etc...feelings and thoughts create your life, your world, your health, your everything and Dr. Hawkins is just one of many individuals who are connecting to this powerful knowledge at this time in our evolution and bringing it forth for those receptive enough and intelligent enough to accept it and use it.
We are all blessed to have this book.
